Natalie Decker and the No. 54 N29 Technologies team will head to World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway this weekend for the CarShield 200. Formerly known as Gateway Motorsports Park, World Wide Technology Raceway is a 1.25-mile oval located just outside St. Louis, Missouri.
The CarShield 200 won’t be Decker’s first time at the raceway. She has one ARCA Menards Series start in the Gateway city. Her lone start came in 2018 where she went on to finished 15th in her track debut. This weekend’s race will mark Decker’s ninth NASCAR Gander Truck Series start of the season. Decker currently sits 19th in driver points with a best finish of 13th which occurred at the 1.5-mile track of Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This weekend will be the third time that Decker has raced on a track less than 1.5-miles in length. In her two previous starts at shorter tracks this season, she finished 17th in both attempts.
The CarShield 200 will broadcast on June 22 on FS1 at 10:00 p.m., ET.
Decker on Gateway: “I’m excited to go to another short track this weekend! I have been to Gateway a few times in my Super Late Model and once in an ARCA car. I’m more familiar with this track than most of the ones we are going to this year. I’m hoping to learn more about this track. I have never raced a truck here before, so it will be different, but I’m ready to get back to the race track this weekend.” Has
